America has, on its northeastern coastline, a city that needs no introduction to its grand presence because just about everyone has heard of Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, about 645,000 residents live in the city, and they know the benefits of living in New England’s economic and cultural center.
Boston’s tourists and residents enjoy visiting the historical neighborhoods, which are a part of the city’s rich heritage. The North End has winding streets and old brick homes, and it has the feeling of being more old-world than a neighborhood such as Beacon Hill, which is the home of the Massachusetts State House. It is also one of many wealthier areas in the city and many homeowners have an alarm system. The Waterfront area across from Boston Harbor has the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, The Harpoon Brewery and many other wonderful attractions.
The Freedom Trail is Boston’s largest historical adventure, and it is a great experience for everyone. It is a red brick trail that covers 2.5 miles, and it has 16 historic sights including Paul Revere’s House and The Old North Church. Some feel that walking this trail is the best thing to do in Boston, although many would include a visit to Harvard, America’s most famous college.
